I'm so glad the South taught us that ice cream and fizzy drinks go well together (thank you, coke floats). I thought I had another root beer in the fridge and an orange soda had crept its way into the cardboard six pack holder- someone did a switcheroo at the store and I didn't notice.
I used it anyway and hoped for a creamsicle-inspired, new, amazing, accidental dessert.
The verdict? Can not replace the root beer float, but pretty darn good. Just don't use diet soda. Ever.
